I first read about it in the local newspaper and didn't think about it too much. At the time, we were discussing how news was reported in our English class and one of our assignments was to watch the news and report in class what we saw on the news. Every network was giving extensive coverage to the Michelangelo virus.
They did not take chances in the computer lab; on March 6, all of the computers had their date set to be a week in the future to completely avoid any chance of the virus being triggered.
It would be over a year before I finally had internet access, discovered open source, and became interested in computers again. In the above picture, you may see how I looked at the time; I fancied myself a musician.
